The Big Lunch

Thanksgiving for neighbours and communities across the UK

The Big Lunch is the UK’s thanksgiving weekend for neighbours and communities - a time where people come together to celebrate community connections and get to know one another a little better. It's held on the first weekend in June, but Big Lunches happen throughout the summer, so there is still plenty of time to get involved!

Now more than ever, we need to make time for each other, so let’s get the nation talking over a cuppa and a bite to eat and have some fun with The Big Lunch. Last year, people took part in our virtual Big Lunch; we'll have more information on how you can participate this year very soon. 

If you have any questions, please send us an email or call us on 0800 022 3357, and make sure you’re signed up for our monthly newsletter so you can keep up to date with developments. Don’t forget to follow us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram, and you can now join our Facebook group to swap ideas, find out what other people are doing and share experiences!
